Advantages of Installing a Tankless Water Heater
Are you trying to decide if a tankless water heater is right for your house? While it’s a big decision, there are a lot of benefits to switching to a point-of-use system. Some of the top advantages are:
- They only heat the exact amount of water needed. This can reduce your monthly utility bills and can keep your family comfortable with ongoing hot water.
- They require less maintenance than traditional units.
- They pose fewer risks of contaminated water since the water isn’t sitting in a tank until it’s used.
- They take up less space than traditional models since there isn’t a storage tank.
How Long Do Tankless Water Heaters Last?
When you buy a tankless water heater, there is no guarantee as to how long your system will last. However, our skilled experts can provide some general guidelines to give you some peace of mind that you won’t immediately need to replace your unit. Depending on the make and model, these systems can last between 10 to 20 years -- or longer. However, this can be affected by how well the system is maintained, how often it is used, and the quality of water it is heating.

Have a Large Household? How Tankless Water Heaters Can Help
Do you have a large family? Scheduling showers and baths can be a hassle to ensure everyone has hot water. Fortunately, tankless systems can help. With a traditional storage tank unit, when you use the hot water you have to wait for the tank to reheat before you’re able to enjoy a hot shower again. With an on-demand system, the unit produces hot water as it’s needed. You might encounter issues if you’re running multiple appliances at once that all require hot water, but your system should be able to keep up better than a traditional unit.
